Twitter on Monday announced that it is launching a “privacy center” that will keep users informed about its data privacy policies.
The company says the Twitter Privacy Center will be a “destination to provide more clarity around what we’re doing to protect the information you share with us” that will include announcements, and information about security incidents and initiatives the company is working on, among other things.
“We believe companies should be accountable to the people that trust them with their personal information, and responsible not only to protect that information but to explain how they do it,” Twitter’s Data Protection Officer Damien Kieran and its Product Lead and co-founder of Periscope Kayvon Beykpour wrote in a blog post, later adding: “Twitter is not perfect at privacy and data protection. But we want you to know our statements are not a cliche but backed by an evolving privacy and data protection program intended to keep your data secure and us accountable.”
The move will allow the company to “have greater freedom to test features and settings and provide people with the controls that meet their needs and expectations.”
The policy also added explanations about what information advertisers can get when a user engages with an ad on Twitter, the company said.
